Renovated space features open floor plan, state-of-the-art wine bar
The Forge Restaurant Wine Bar has reopened after undergoing a year-long makeover that places an emphasis on offering a “lifestyle approach” to dining.

“I didn’t just want to design a restaurant, but a living space where people can create their own worlds,” said owner Shareef Malnik. “At the new Forge you are able to enjoy a five-course meal with wine pairings or order a burger and a glass of Bordeaux by the fire and read the art books or check your Facebook.”

The restaurant’s makeover was designed and exicuited by Francois Frossard, who replaced its dark woods, stained-glass murals and gilded-framed art with walls of hand-carved blonde wood and antique smoked mirror, octopus-like lilac and white crystal chandeliers, and an eclectic mix of upholstered and metal furniture. Frossard also eliminated more ha 100 seats, to create an open floor plan with the ambience of a large private home where every seat is “the best in the house.”
The Forge, which first opened in 1968, now also features a Wine Bar that’s home to banks of stainless steel and glass-encased Enomatic Wine Systems, which allow guests to serve themselves wine in either one, three, or five ounce pours.
